Some Rude Fisherman around KK Island

You know this is probably the best lesson for all of us. 

Earlier this year I took my boat over to Lake Leatherwood and fished. Came back to the ramp and 2 older gentlemen were struggling to put in a smaller bass boat on a unimproved ramp. I set and waited for what seemed like forever to me. It may have been 10 or 15 minutes after all was said and done they didn't even take off just pulled on bank and kept loading stuff in the boat. We took out in a jiffy and one of them stopped us, thanked us for being patient, and proceeded to tell us their minds and bodies didn't work like they use too. They come out to Leatherwood to enjoy themselves without the hustle and bustle of the bigger lakes. 

I honestly felt bad driving out of there. While I had been nice and patient on the outside, my mind wasn't. While I was never downright mean, I'd be a liar if I didn't say I had thoughts that they should have been doing something else or at a minimum let us pull out first.

We all need to slow down a little bit. Life's to short to worry about things that don't matter in the grand scheme and you never know the struggles of someone else. 

Great story and an even better takeaway. We all get impatient and fail to show compassion for others, even though we know better. The past few months have taught me firsthand that everyone is going through something --- and even if they aren't at the moment, they soon will be. That's just how life on this imperfect earth works. 

Between my dad passing, my mom going downhill at an alarming rate, trying to manage their affairs from 3.5 hours away, Covid policies creating havoc at work, etc., I haven't been at my best lately but I'm sure others have been patient with me. The least I can do is return the favor.

Yes, there's usually two sides to every story and neither of them is intentionally rude.
